I’m only 9 days away from my wedding, and I think I’m going insane. It feels like I have a million things to do, but I can’t think of them! And every insecurity I have had about this wedding is popping back up. I hate my reception dress, worried about my wedding dress, don’t like my centerpieces, wishing I had changed the guest list… just everything I have ever had a concern about, and even a few things that I was super happy about like a week ago now seem bad. I’m terrified of my own wedding!
Bees, did you deal with these emotions? What did you do to help? I’m worried I won’t be able to enjoy my own wedding 🙁

Sit down, make a list, priorize the list and do what you can do. Delegate what you can delegate. There is no law that says the bride has to do everything.
Schedule in some down time for a long hot shower or bath, a walk, a nap- whatever you need.
Give yourself a “talking to” and stop the negative self talk about the dresses, centerpieces etc. You know you like them or you woudln’t have chosen them.
Above all keep your eye on the prize- you are marrying the one you love.

Go on The Knot and find the wedding checklist. They have a day of one where it tells you what to remember.
Honestly, all the work you have done so far will look beautiful in 9 days. It is hard when you don’t have it pieced all together. I promise you will have a lovely wedding. Right now you are going through what a lot of women do 🙂

@julies1949: My biggest problem seems to be I think I’m forgetting something. My to-do list includes getting my nails done, getting FI hair cut, and finishing my reserved seating signs. But I’m stuck in a “there has be be something to do”rut.
And FI has been super supportive, marrying him is about the only thing I’m 100% at this point
The “big day” and the “show” of it all is driving my crazy though
